Sunday Walk

I didn't get up as early today as I do when I walk with the Buckeye Striders on Saturdays. I did just 30 min. in the neighborhood. It was brisk this morning and I felt chilly in shorts and a light long-sleeved T-shirt, but because of Larry's admonitions, I did not go back for a jacket. I didn't really warm up, but I didn't freeze. I'm learning.

To make today's walk a little more interesting, I decided to do sprints in the shade. I walked as hard as I could when I encountered shade, but kept a moderate pace in the sun. One side of the street was a little tougher than the other, as one side had NO trees.

It wasn't my hardest workout, but I didn't have much time so it worked out well. And it was a great start to a beautiful Sunday.

After dinner, my husband, son and I went for a 40-min walk in the neighborhood. It was nice! Since I didn't go very far this morning, I felt I really needed it.
